When I got up this morning I had some expectations for my day. Class, laundry, homework, maybe a movie or some gaming tonight.

Hello world, welcome to my little blog. I noticed recently that there is a dearth of cartoon and animation blogs on the internet and decided to do my part to fill that hole. My goal is to use this blog as a source for animation news, reviews, and updates, as well as original content and featured videos. Comments and feedback is much appreciated. Thanks for reading and enjoy.
